Parish water sample is best tasting in region
A Waterworks employee shows school children what the water looks like before it goes through the parish’s purification process.
The contest was judged on the water's clarity, taste, odor and finish, which relates to aftertaste. St. Charles beat out samples from Center Grove, Ark.; Tulsa, Okla.; Beaver Creek, Ark.; and Shreveport. St. Charles Parish represented Louisiana in the contest after claiming the same title in a similar statewide contest earlier this year.
"We were honored to compete and hope to bring more awards back to St. Charles Parish," Waterworks Director Robbie Brou said. "But win or lose, the employees of the Waterworks Department will continue to provide the citizens of St. Charles Parish with great-tasting water that is safe and meets all water quality regulations."
The parish will now have the honor of competing in the "ACE Best of the Best Water Taste Test" at the AWWA Annual Conference in June 2009. AWWA is the largest organization of water supply professionals in the world, representing more than 59,000 members and 4,700 utilities supplying water to about 180 million people in North America. All entries in the Water Taste Contest must have incurred no state or federal drinking water violations during the previous calendar year.
"St. Charles Waterworks is eagerly awaiting the chance to compete against 43 other AWWA section winners from North America," Brou said. "Our competition will include samples from the United States, Canada and Mexico."
